Replace this text with your own description of this group.
A workspace is different. It's a place where people can work on writing documents together. Anyone can edit, assuming the group permissions allow it. Just click Edit on the menu bar at the top of the screen, and you'll see what I mean.
As you begin to edit more and more complex documents, it's important to keep this plain text clean. Don't be overly concerned about the presentation of your document; instead, focus on the content and readability in the plain text. If it isn't readable in the Edit box, your colleagues won't be able to contribute.
One fun thing about workspaces is that you can create new pages just by naming them in your document. For example, here's a new page now: Sandbox Notice that it's a single word, and followed by a single underscore. If I wanted to create a page with multiple words, I would enclose the page in back-ticks, like this: My experiments To get that, I typed this: `My experiments`_
But remember, just creating a new page doesn't make it easy to find. And if other people can't find your page, what's the point of working on it? Make sure you don't create orphans. Always think about linking to your pages from a Home page of some sort. If you can't think of a Home page for your pages, then at least use an Index page to gather them all in one place.
Now, another tip on how to format your documents. Remember, the plain text is the most important thing: it has to be readable to be useful. So, use plenty of white space. Always leave a blank line between paragraphs, and before and after headings or lists. Just take a look at the plain text of this document, and you'll see what I mean.
Also remember to start every paragraph at the left edge of the Edit box; don't indent paragraphs like they taught you in typing class. If you indent a paragraph in the plain text, it will end up indented a lot more on the web page. Use that to your advantage when you like, but sparingly.
Beyond that, there are a few fancy tricks you might want to learn as you get more familiar with this workspace. Be sure to refer to the /help/Punctuation Help document to learn more if you get stuck.
Now, it's time to get back to work!
